I finally got my school supplies package and am so excited!  Smithyboy did a great job, really excellent crafting, and I am very happy with them.

Here's the photo:


Clockwise from the fellow in the back, I got:
1. A neat hand-made folder with a picture of Cabrillo on it, a spanish explorer, with lots of folders!
2. A cool tubey thing that zips and I think is for pens and pencils, if not secret documents.  I don't even know what this thing originally was, but smithyboy did a great job attaching the decorations.
3. A covered notebook with a nice swirly pattern
4. A lanyard, presumably for keys, which will come in handy for sure.
5. A REEEEALLY pretty pouch with a zipper and lining, and the zipper  sewing is really top notch. Probably my favorite item.

Overall, a really great batch of supplies.  Definitely nice to get since I have been stressing over school stuff, but this is one thing I don't have to worry about!  Supplies... check!
Thank you smithyboy!

6iggle- I am so glad that you love your package! I happened to pick up the fabric on clearance at JoAnn's a while back, and when I read your questionnaire, I knew that I had to use some of it for you  Wink The paper clips are my first shrink plastic attempts in a very long time. I traced the image and colored it with Sharpie and then put Mod-Podge over them to seal it (it's funny, but I did some in colored pencil, and the Mod-Podge made the pencil bleed purple). Then I used E-6000 to glue them to the paper clips. And, once you use up the sketch book, a 5" X 7" book of the same type (not one with a spiral binding, which won't fit, as I found out  Cheesy ) should fit neatly with the back cover tucked into the flap...

lindsoriah- What a great package! I just love all of the swirly fabric! And, for some reason, I never thought to make my own lanyards like the one you got. Might have to do that!

thanks everyone! i am soooo glad you liked it lindsoriah! i had a lot of fun making everything (and re-making  Tongue) i had to make the inside of the folder twice, i put the pocket on upside down (smart, i know). and that is a pencil/pen tube.  it was originally  a pink pencil/pen tube from Joann's, i just spray painted it and glued on school supplies ribbon, and school supplies buttons! and i looooove my package from you!! i am going to use everything in it all year! i already have designated each covered notebook for a class!  the crochet (?) pencil pouch is to DIE for, i love the color combos, and the matching pencil sharpener! thanks sooo much! i cannot wait for school now, i will be so styling!

<3, SmithyBoy

Glad you like them... I got the color combo ideas from you, so i can't take too much credit, but yeah the pouch is crocheted.  It is actually called needle-weaving because you crochet like a mesh and then weave the second color (in this case black) through it to make a thicker fabric. i chose it because i hadn't ever woven that way, and you said you would like crochet and beads. so really you're to thank for that as well, little lady!!

Oh and in case anyone's wondering what me and smithyboy are talking about, she said I can post what pictures I have due to computer issues on her end. Here's the link:

http://lindsoriah.livejournal.com/35748.html#cutid1

If you don't have time for links, I sent:
-- a black, white, and turquoise pencil sharpener
-- a black, white, and turquoise crochet pencil pouch
-- Two notebooks with covers in pink/pastels, and brown/yellow combinations
-- three pencils in varying colors

I'm just relieved she liked it.  I always have such bad swap anxiety.

Ha! I just went back through all of the posts wondering how I missed your items Wink That crochet/needle weave pouch is awesome! I might have to add that technique to my list of things to learn!

It's really quite simple.  This was my first attempt with it and I would like to try the weaving with normal yarn (not bumpy) and maybe with ribbon.  I hope you do try it, and i"m glad I could introduce something new!

kitschkween-- thanks!  i've been crafting a while but i rarely get that kind of praise.  unless by 'designer' you mean crazy cokehead carnivalwear that only models on the runway can pull off.  just kidding.
